You know what I like? Tasty snacks. It’s been said that, deep down, we all want the same things and I believe that's true. Most everyone I know enjoys a good, tasty snack and probably a lot of people I don’t know yet. It’s what brings us together, the Family Of Man. But did you know that “tasty snack” can mean something different depending upon who is thinking of the “tasty snack”? It’s true. Read on.

Some people consider fruit a tasty snack - like a tangerine or a juicy apple - while others are all like “What? Sour Cream & Onion Pringles FTW!” I even worked with a girl who would smear large amounts of cream cheese on strips of corned beef. Then she would totally eat that! In Spain, a lot of people eat tapas while just a couple hundred miles to the south a lot of people eat camel cheese. I’m not making this up.

And you know how some Japanese people prefer Strawberry Pocky while others prefer Chocolate? Well, get this, even animals are in on it. Animals love tasty snacks too but define the term in a variety of ways. I knew a cat who went crazy for popcorn but Humboldt Squid tend to prefer other squid. Hmm, I think that’s more of meal food to them but you get the idea. No matter how they define it, almost everyone loves a tasty snack. If you meet someone who doesn’t, they’re probably just a computer or a robot.
